Roy is a person with patient and knowledge. Great spirit and lovely way of sharing the nature with his group. We all enjoyed meeting him as a professional and a person.

Because we were staying in Esterillos, and had booked a guided tour to Manuel Antonio with another excellent guide (Roy and he were great friends!), Roy suggested that he take us to Carara National Park and the crocodiles at Tarcoles. It was terrific having him as a private guide for the two of us, at not a very different price... More

We had a great time in Manuel Antonio national park with Roy Orozco. Roy spotted for us three types of monkeys and two kinds of sloths as well as other wildlife. The tour included a swimming break in a beautiful beach and a small meal in the end of the day. Roy helped taking pictures with our phones and his... More

Roy met us promptly at our agreed time, it was immediately recognized that he is well respected among his peers, and has a deep understanding of nature, from the ground up! Our day started by observing spiders, grass hoppers, plants and culminated with sloth's (3 and 2 toed), monkeys (white faced, and howlers) and iguanas, land and tree crabs! This... More

Roy took us on a guided tour of the Manual Antonia Park. There were 5 adults and children aged 13, 11, 7 and 5. Everyone loved the tour. Roy is extremely knowledgeable and carries an ipad and showed us videos of the animals which were fascinating. He told us so much about the monkeys, sloths, etc. His English is first... More

If you love nature, birds and wildlife.....Roy Orozco is the guide for you. I read all his reviews and followed him on Facebook before booking, but was still a bit nervous. I live in the USA and am a female traveling with another female. We took the leap, booked Roy online.....months ahead of time.....and this trip was much more than... More

If you took this walk through the park on your own, you would never understand what Manuel Antonio is all about. It is a park, a preserve, a balance with nature, and a playground teaming with wildlife. Roy will walk you through and open your eyes and your mind to the natural world around you. You will be excited to... More

We spend the first week of April 2014 in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. There is no need to describe how beautiful this country is regardless of where you go, but if you want to see the real, tourist-unspoiled, and not crowded gems of this country, hire a guide. A month before our trip we e-mailed Roy Orozco (www.naturespecialist.com) and he... More

Roy was a great guide for our Manuel Antonio tour, without him we would have never spotted all the animals we ended up seeing. He was patient and knowledgeable, and provided us with lots of information about the wildlife. He is also an artist - he has a nice art gallery in downtown Quepos that we enjoyed visiting later in...
